    No, I am old enough to remember the 1956 and 1960 presidential campaigns. I was just a little tyke in 1952 and do not remember much about it. I think what we have today started with LBJ's flower girl political ad.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    And then there was the black migration from the South to big cities where ethnic democrat influence also helped in turning the tide.

    Agreed . . . it is a good thing no one ever said that. Again, October skies produce too much rain.

    See, I have shown before how HORRIBLE your reading skills were, and you just proved it again. What he said is that "some in the GOP believe that slavery is not over"....the context being that significant numbers of the GOP push for voter suppression, feel that Blacks are inferior.

    or maybe it has existed since the day this country had been founded.

    consider this forbes article from two years ago.
    The Dirtiest Presidential Campaign Ever? Not Even Close! - Forbes

    Not unlike much of the mud-slinging we experience in modern elections, the dirty work, back in the earliest days of the nation, was often left to surrogates. One such surrogate was the influential President of Yale University, a John Adams supporter, who publically suggested that were Jefferson to become the president, “we would see our wives and daughters the victims of legal prostitution.”

    The concern was amplified by an influential—and highly partisan—Connecticut newspaper’s warning that electing Jefferson would create a nation where “murder, robbery, rape, adultery and incest will openly be taught and practiced.”
    and the response from jeffersons supporters?

    One particularly stinging attack came via one James Callender—an influential journalist of the time whose incendiary pamphlets had been secretly funded by Thomas Jefferson and who had an axe to grind for having been prosecuted and imprisoned by the Adams Administration for violating The Sedition Act.

    Callender wrote that Adams was a rageful, lying, warmongering fellow; a “repulsive pedant” and “gross hypocrite” who “behaved neither like a man nor like a woman but instead possessed a hideous hermaphroditical character.”
